Long Beach, California, February 9, 2023 – Zwift, the global online fitness platform for cyclists, triathletes, and runners, is excited to announce a first-of-its-kind video integration with Strava, the leading subscription platform at the center of connected fitness. Starting today, Zwifters can attach 15-second video clips to their virtual Zwift activities uploaded to Strava.
Zwift is the first Strava partner to take advantage of the video API since Strava launched video functionality for its community of over 100 million athletes globally in June of 2022.
This integration gives Zwifters an opportunity to elevate their experience on Strava by allowing an easy way to share videos of favorite moments from their rides, runs, or races; whether it is a favorite spot in Zwift’s virtual worlds or a decisive moment in a race.
To capture a video, Zwifters will click an icon on the action bar on their desktop interface, or on Zwift Companion App, to record the previous 15 seconds – no more guessing when something exciting is about to happen, or trying to start recording before launching a sprint! Zwifters can capture multiple videos in a ride.
To ensure every exciting moment is captured, video will also automatically record when notable moments in the Zwift game occur such as winning a segment jersey or hitting a weekly fitness goal. After ending their ride, Zwifters will then select which video to upload to Strava. All videos, whether uploaded to Strava or not, will also be downloaded to the Zwifter’s device and users can delete unwanted images.
This feature is available today on iOS and MacOS devices, followed shortly by TVOS, Android, and other devices.
